Coffee and Friends

Ah Spring! When will you ever arrive? For now (and likely the next few months!) I can only dream of you. I did hear a chirping bird a couple of days ago :) but it is snowing...again :(

Having a lot of fun with the spring coffee hop! Here is my next one.

#338
This is where I want to be, sitting outside in a little cafe with a friend, enjoying a coffee. I know, I know, it will come!

Watercolored the stamped image from Magenta, stamped the umbrellas on patterned paper, and then stamped the words on it for the background. Word stamp is Hero Arts-19th century French script. Yup, I was thinking of a cafe in Paris, why not!

Giveaway! If you are here for the first time, make a comment before the end of the hop, March 6, and for each comment you leave on my hop posts, your name goes into a random draw for this stamp set. Good Luck!
